Focus Reading Jn 17:20-26 

John should have been a home shopping marketer! When we read some of the longer passages in John's gospel we hear Jesus and John, say something, then say it again and repeat it and so on. It's like those old TV ads. In Australia there was a telemarketing group called Demtel and the face of demtel was Tim shaw. (Follow this link to see an example of Tm's work.) He was always saying, "There's more!" or "Waith, There's more!" I've modeled my style a little in this Sermon on Tim Shaw and the like.  The product is the Amazing Gospel package. 

In this amazing Gospel package you get to share in the amazingly close relationship of Jesus with God the Father! As a free bonus you also get hundreds and millions of brothers and sisters. 

But wait there's more!

You also get 

  • to share in the glory of God
  • Salvation, now and for eternity
  • God's love poured into your very being

And as a special bonus, for free

  • the privilege and responsibility of sharing in the mission of Jesus.

HOW MUCH WOULD YOU EXPECT TO PAY? A billion dollars? That would be a bargain. Less! A million dollars, that would be a steal! Less! In fact this offer today, and for eternity costs absolutely NOTHING! That's right it's FREE! 

It costs absolutely nothing & absolutely everything! But that's another sermon...
